49ers offer refunds to season-ticket holders, say Levi’s Stadium may not host fans in 2020

Jul 8, 2020 at 1:16 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday sent out emails to season-ticket holders informing them of their options for the 2020 season. The team notes that it does not yet have definitive details on what the preseason schedule might look like. It also took the opportunity to communicate the approach to ticket sales at Levi's Stadium for this year.

The team acknowledges that Levi's Stadium may not be able to host fans in a "full or limited capacity" during the upcoming season.

"To ensure the health and safety of our season ticket members, players, coaches, staff, and the greater community and to comply with state and local restrictions, we may not be able to host fans in a full or limited capacity this season," read the email. "Given this uncertainty, season ticket members will have two options for payments made for the upcoming season: (1) credit your 2020 payments to the 2021 season; or (2) request a refund. In the event we have limited capacity at Levi's Stadium this season, tickets will be made available on a game-by-game basis at the season ticket rate. Members electing to credit 2020 payments to the 2021 season will receive preferred access to available tickets."

Those electing to receive refunds will see no negative impact on their account seniority or seat location but will not gain preferred access to ticket sales for the upcoming season, should any seats be made available.

The 49ers and NFL as a whole continue to work out the detail of holding a 2020 season. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the league to reevaluate how fans will experience football this year.

Other NFL teams, like the Baltimore Ravens, have already informed their season-ticket holders of similar options while noting that seating at M&T Bank Stadium will be reduced to a maximum of 14,000 seats per game. That's assuming even that number is permitted under state and local regulations. The situation remains fluid and could change drastically in the weeks and months ahead.

"With ticket demand expected to exceed any availability in 2020, ticket availability is not guaranteed for any member this season," the 49ers noted on the team's official website.

Proximity to Levi's Stadium gives 49ers an advantage while holding training camp during a pandemic

When San Francisco 49ers players are finally able to enter the team's facilities, things will be a lot different compared to when they left. Aside from being required to wear face masks — apart from when they are alone in a room — they'll notice a lot of things missing. Gone are all of the seats and tables in the team's cafeteria. Players can no longer dine there. They will need to grab their pre-packaged food and go, eating it outside or in the offices. Most of the seating in the main auditorium where full-team meetings are typically held will now have caution tape draped over them, preventing players — or anyone — from sitting too close to another person. Of course, none of this will happen until players report to training

49ers' Richard Sherman: NFL will 'fight tooth and nail' to finish 2020 season

The NFL is doing everything in its power to ensure that the 2020 season, in some form, takes place. If that means conceding to a few demands from the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), so be it. The alternative—no season—is a less-favorable option. The NFL has finally agreed to daily testing when it wanted less frequent checks for the COVID-19 virus. The league has yielded to the NFLPA, saying now that it is okay with eliminating the preseason altogether after fighting to keep half or even just one weeks' worth of exhibition matchups. Many are skeptical that the NFL can pull off a 16-game season. Some even doubt that Week 1's slate of games will be played. Something is likely to give with the pandemic showing no signs of slowing. Those
